Awhile back I started a discussion asking my friends and other members here about how to know about picking brocholli etc. Well thanks to you all that helped me out. I have had 2 times that I've picked and eaten fresh brocholli. Now this photo shows one of those plants with the new growth on them. Thanks again all for your help. Do you like brocholli at all? Do you like it boiled? Do you like it steamed? Or do you like it plain and raw like my wife? I prtefer it steamed with butter as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Brocolli is one of the veg that everyone in this house adores, but I've never been particularly successful growing it. It's better than my cauliflowers though, which really are laughable. My broccoli is normally very small, but at least it's still edible like that. I like to eat brocolli in all sorts of ways, providing that it's not over cooked. i think my favourite is just mixed along with other veg in a stir fry or with sauce over rice.

I love brocholli! in singaporean chinese cooking it is usually stir fried. and that also means seasoning it with soy sauce. i find westernised cooking brocholli rather plain at times. usually just boiled and buttered as you have mentioned. in chinese cooking, usually brocholli is added to prawns, shrimps, or mushrooms and with cornflour starch sauce. so there's a nice gravy that sticks to the brocholli. try it at your nearest takeaway restaurant the next time!
